What about synchronization?

I am thinking about this idea of robots on a cloud. I understand the hurdle of a broken Internet connection being an obstacle. So what about a work around using two ROS operating systems? The first is on board the robot, the second in the cloud. If the connection between the two is dropped, the bot operates independently, once the connection is re-established the two systems synchronize. It would be like two brains meeting, parting and then meeting again. Thoughts?

Yes, that's pretty much how it's done.
